Hi! My name is Basil and I am a foster dog looking for my forever home and I deserve a chance. Let me tell you a little about my story…
When I play, I get a little too excited and forget how big I am. My previous owners were nervous about baby #2 on the way…so after a tearful goodbye I moved in with my foster parents. These last 5 months have been great, but my foster mommies are sad no one will give me a chance. I have high anxiety with meeting new people which sometimes causes me to act aloof. My foster mommies tell me I am getting better especially when we practice what I learned in training. I learned a lot of cool tricks that I love to show off every day when we practice them. Especially since consistency is very important with me. My foster mommies always say how smart I am with how quickly I learn new tricks like place, sit, paw, down, and come. I am a pro at going on walks and stay right at my mommy’s heels. I love to cuddle and give “hugs” when I am not playing with the kitty or other two doggies that live with me. I am not always the best at sharing toys or my mommy’s attention so even though I love playing with my foster siblings, it would be kind of cool to have a family all to myself. I do wear a pinch collar, which originally made my mommy sad, because of the negative rumors that go along with them. But it makes me happy and I feel safe when it is on. Plus, who doesn’t love looking this stylish 24/7 with all this bling!
I would love a chance to prove I am worth it and can be the best puppy in the world. If anyone is willing to try I would love to meet you! All you have to do is put in an application at needypaws.org and my foster mommy would love to tell you more!
Thanks for hearing my story!
